Welcome and thanks for stopping by!
My ideal patient is someone who wants to learn connections between food and health, as well as, clean eating and healthy ingredients to put into AND onto their body. After working with me, we redefine what the patient’s new normal is. A good day for my patient would be surviving the day symptom free.
Patients who see me fall in three categories: 1) weight loss or gain, 2) eating to manage a medical diagnosis (e.g., IBD, Crohn’s, Celiac, AutoImmune Disorder), and/or 3) managing/eliminating acute or chronic symptoms related to food and chemical allergies/sensitivities/intolerances. Most of my patients fall in all of these categories.
Patients see me as their puzzle solver since the journey they want to start on is either new or they need to get back on track. There are a lot of pieces to figure out and we identify the priority to work on first and then go from there. We look at compatible foods, physical activity for body type, and work/life balance strategies to create an individualized plan that reclaims health and life simply and realistically. I teach patients how to put proper systems and structures in place to make good decisions.
Patients see me to gain basic knowledge (e.g., nutrition label reading, meal planning, how to boil an egg) to advanced knowledge (e.g., nutrition’s impact at the molecular/physiological level and the science behind an ingredient promoting health or disease).
I am not your typical Dietitian. My work is based on bio-individuality. What is best for someone won’t be best for someone else.
